Thanks Alex

Special thanks to journalist, author and great story-teller, Alex Kotlowitz for his guest appearance in my Sociology of Ed class last night. Alex talked about some of his experiences, researching and telling the story, There Are No Children Here, of kids growing up in Chicago's housing projects. His main concern, the epidemic of violence in our society and the toll it is taking on young people as well as on the entire community.


  1. One of the best books I've ever read.

  2. Your class sounds great. Can I come and sit in?


Agree? Disagree? Let me hear from you.
